  • Are Herbalife's Nutrition Clubs Operating In Violation Of The Law? [View article]
    And your point is?

    Yes, we are in this to make money.

    Are you shocked?

    I wouldn't present something to the public that I didn't strongly believe in. This is something that we have spent a LOT of time researching.

    Thanks for responding. I'd like to ask you a few questions about your club. Be as open and honest as you like:

    1. Has Herbalife corporate ever come to inspect your club?
    2. What were your startup costs in opening the club?
    3. How many daily customers do you have?
    4. What are your weekly sales figures? And weekly overhead/expenses?
    5. In your opinion why do you believe Herbalife demands for you to block windows and not post signage?
    6. Do you think its somewhat strange that Herbalife demands that you deface labels of containers before disposing?

    Comical. Good luck investing based on the advice of Zacks. You do realize that recommendation is based on EPS surprises right? I hope you realize how meaningless that is with a stock such as Herbalife; which could potentially be scrutinized at any moment by various regulators.

    Great observation Matt, I didn't really think about it that way, but it makes a lot of sense.

    No reason that Herbalife should not be playing by the same rules as its competitors.

    If you believe that Ackman did a 'little research' you obviously didn't read his 'Questions for Herbalife' document published yesterday, which I believe is more damning than his initial presentation.

    I openly admit that we are short, and have been researching and following Herbalife for quite some time now. I am publishing the facts about what we have found, things that I believe the investing public should be aware of. Especially for those that are considering following the lead of big hedge fund managers like Loeb.

    Yes, believe it or not Mexico's food safety laws are fairly stringent.

    If you can read spanish, have fun leafing through all of the rules and regulations.

    I'm not here saying that Mexico's regulators would clamp down on those violating food or local laws more forcefully than the US, but just note that there are laws in place.

    Plus, there have been problems in the past with Nutrition Clubs in Mexico --including clubs that have out-side signage. This does not replace the rules but it does show us that in Mexico, like in the US, Herbalife Nutrition Clubs are hidden from the regulators.

    Nice work on this Matt! I think this new disclosure might have made a bad situation look even worse.

    If you are relying on Herbalife's cash flow, then you should probably revisit your investment strategy.

  • Pershing Gold: Not A Daytrade But A Long-Term Investment [View article]
    Thanks for the article. I'm just curious about one thing. I noticed that Barry Honig is also a director at Chromadex, another company you recently covered. Not doubting your research, but before I committed my own capital, would like to hear if you are connected to Honig in any way? Or maybe you are just following his lead?

  • Did The CEO Of Herbalife Violate The Fair Disclosure Rule? [View article]
    Absolutely Doghouse...I didn't mention Weiser, but she can certainly be lumped in with Ramey.

  • Navigating The Labyrinth That Is Herbalife [View article]
    No, i didn't, because i couldn't find the costs in any of the filings. But after reading Ackman's stuff, i can see they revealed in the SEC responses. Just add it to the list. There is no possible way they can dig out of this mess.
